Graduate Outcomes Survey

The QILT logo for the Graduate Outcomes SurveyThe purpose of the survey is to find out from recent graduates what type of work and/or further study they were engaged in a few months after completion of their course. Graduates are also asked for feedback on their satisfaction with the course just completed.

The survey is conducted twice per year in May and November.

 The survey is made up of the following parts:

  • The Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS) (previously known as the Australian Graduate Survey (AGS)) looks at employment outcomes,
  • The Course Experience Questionnaire (CEQ) looks at student satisfaction with the course just completed, and
  • The Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PREQ) looks at student satisfaction for post-graduate by research students.

A separate survey the 'GOS-L (Longitudinal)' (formerly the 'Beyond Graduation Survey') follows up graduating students 3 years later. This survey provides data on medium term employment outcomes for graduates. The National Report from the 2016 GOS-L is available from the QILT website. Summary reports on the BGS are available via the staff intranet.

The National Report from the 2016 Graduate Outcomes Survey is available from the QILT website.
